Listen to Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow power through new single The Storm

Ritchie Blackmore

Ritchie Blackmore (opens in new tab)’s Rainbow have released a stream of their new single.

It’s titled The Storm, and it follows Black Sheep Of The Family (opens in new tab), which appeared last month.

The Storm originally appeared on Blackmore’s Night album Fires At Midnight – which was released back in 2001, although the new version, as you might expect, has a much harder and rockier edge. 

Check out both versions below.

Blackmore is joined in the current Rainbow lineup by vocalist Ronnie Romero, Stratovarius keyboard player Jens Johansson, Blackmore's Night drummer David Keith and bassist Bob Nouveau.

In 2017, the band released their first new recordings in over two decades: a re-working of the band’s 1981 hit I Surrender – originally sung by Joe Lynn Turner – and a cover of Edward Elgar’s Land Of Hope And Glory.
